Fun place to take my (BIG) puppy

I loved the restaurant because I was able to bring my dog along, we sat on the outside patio and I ordered him a plain burger and some broccoli! He loved it he would probably give it 4 paws up! I really like the edamame here, it is spicy, citrus and salty all in one! Also had the little mini... read more

Stopped here on a whim.. Great choice. Menu had many choices. Service was excellent. Waitress was very helpful about menu items and was extremely nice and pleasant. Food service was fast . Waitress even wrote specific directions to a certain place we needed to get too. I would highly recommend this restaurant

We've stopped here three times for lunch on our way home from medical visits in LA. Never disappointed with Lazy Dog! Great atmosphere, great service, and great food! Love that they don't overwhelm the place with loud music so you can actually have a conversation! Love the outdoor patio too. They Philly Cheese Steak Dip Sandwich is TO DIE FOR... More

a well rounded menu with reasonable prices. Can be a bit noisy and parking can be a challenge at dinner time. Lovely outside patio for owners of dogs.

My husband and I visited after shopping at the mall. The cafe was very busy and the staff was working hard. They did a nice job and the menu is huge. The food quality just seemed average for the price we paid. We may try it again in the future but not sure.

We have lived in Thousand Oaks for 4 months and have never even heard of this place. We will be regulars here for sure. The GM brought us an appetizer and was able to answer some questions about the decor. The story was great. This place is a must.

I enjoy every appetizer, meal and dessert I have ever had at the DOG! Great selection of food and great prices. My grand dog loves coming to eat there as well. She loves the chicken and rice.

The servers were all friendly, but the food was disappointing. I had fish tacos and they were boring and not particularly flavorful. The prices for a glass of wine were reasonable, but the wine wasn't that great.

We have stopped at this restaurant two times now on our way back home from Los Angeles. The atmosphere is tops....they have music playing, but it's not so loud and overbearing as we have experienced in other restaurants. The staff is super friendly, the food is fantastic, and the drinks are SO GOOD! The Philly Cheesesteak Dip Sandwich is TO... More
